    Skill and resilience have won, despite fire from three directions.
    This is a new debacle for taliban and done morale to troops.
    I congratulate with You, buddies, for Your determination on a situation not easily, for Your skill and Your resilience.
    It is an honor have notice of Yor existence,

    My mate is a marine and would like to say how proud I am off all the marines out there.

    You guys are doing a grand job.

    Fantastic work lads! It must have been bloody terrifying but nobody ever said the “Royals” dont have guts & determination by the truckload.
    God bless you lads & stay safe.

    I would like to point out that the sun newspaper has got all this wrong. I’m in 29 commando royal artillery and in fact it was us who has the battle at compound 62 not the marines. We was attached to the royal marines and lima company and had a couple of bootnecks with us at the time but it was 29 commando royal artillery that was ambushed and fought our way out. Army commandos not Marine commandos
